Although fossil fuels uncomplicated are easy to use energy sources, the issues associated with their use are numerous; it affects political, economic, health and environment. The current energy problems result from the way fossil fuels are consumed at an exponential rate, and the world demand of these fuels is expected to go up each year for several decades to come. Renewable energy deployment is steadily growing in Africa, a continent with abundance of resources- wind, water, sun, and biomass. Investing in the long term solutions that these renewable energy sources have to offer would be advantageous and beneficial to all African countries by helping to avoid economic and sustainability problems. These truths show us that the wind can provide a lot of our present and future world energy requirements.
